Once upon a time, braces were known to be solely for children and teenagers. Many adults who needed treatment avoided it, shying away from the cosmetically-invasive brace designs and associated discomfort. Times have indeed changed. Braces are less invasive in terms of function and aesthetic than ever before, attracting an increasing number of adult patients. Read on to find out about the types of adult brace options offered by us here at Fresh in Maidstone.
Removable braces: Invisalign
We offer two different types of removable brace options, both part of the popular and well-respected Invisalign system; Invisalign i7 and Invisalign Express.
Invisalign i7 is a relatively new addition to the Invisalign family and is specifically used for minor tooth movements. Producing results in as few as 3 months, the brace can tackle minor crowding and misalignment issues that are cosmetic rather than issues that affect the function of your teeth.
Invisalign Express is another strand on the Invisalign tree and has recourse to the same computer smile design technology and consultative support as the traditional Invisalign system. Invisalign Express amalgamates the best of its predecessors traits to correct more minor orthodontic issues.
Invisalign aligners are custom made to fit your exact tooth structure, which equates to higher levels of comfort. Since the brace is removable, Invisalign is particularly popular with customer and client-facing professionals who wish to have the freedom of removing their braces for meetings and presentations, for example.
Despite being a non-removable brace, Cfast is a highly-appealing choice of brace for patients. Cfast braces offer patients a faster treatment period and more discreet appearance than traditional fixed metal braces, incorporating ceramic brackets and tooth-coloured wires into their design. The three principal benefits of Cfast are:
- Comfortable: Cfast focuses on what is known as the ‘social six’ teeth (the teeth visible when you smile), so the force required is minimal, rendering the treatment more comfortable than conventional brace models.
- Affordable: Cfast’s shorter treatment time cuts the cost of your treatment, making it more affordable than other brace options.
- Subtle: as mentioned above, Cfast uses tooth-coloured wires and clear brackets to ensure the patient’s smile remains as unchanged as possible throughout treatment.
